Joel Spencer, Director
After living and working in London for six years, Joel returned to Sydney with a fresh sense of perspective and creativity. From this, JSD was born. 15 years later JSD has become one of Sydney’s most respected and well-known design studios.
If he’s not listening to The Pet Shop Boys or Client Liaison, Joel can be found helping local businesses with their planning and development, working on a new design or event project, discovering hidden coffee shop treasures around Sydney and whizzing around in his beloved Fiat Punto.
Joel has a life-long love affair with cars (he sponsors Australian race car driver, Luke King) and has a deep love for truly great and creative design. He loves to attend local and international events and finds joy in analysing experiences to continuously reach new heights in CX, UX and event experience.
One of Joel’s favourite artforms is the good ol’ art of conversation. He knows that the sandwich maker down the road lost 10kgs from walking to work, that the local barista drives a Mazda MX5 and that the guy from the coffee shop on the next block drives a Subaru Forester.
Elizabeth Browne, Marketing
Elizabeth comes to JSD with a passion for anything nonconventional and loud, an addiction to unwavering love for a good cup of tea and over eight years experience in direct, digital and social media marketing.
Liz has far too many Spotify playlists on the go, knows way too much about the 80s glam rock scene and was born and raised in the quaint country town of Malvern, Worcestershire in England.
Since graduating Queensland University of Technology with a Bachelor of Business Marketing majoring in Music Studies, Liz has over nine years experience working in corporate and media marketing roles within Zupps AHG, Southern Cross Austereo, Access PR and Sony Music Australia. She has a passion for social media (which basically means she loves a good Instagram shot and tell you the best filter for any occasion) and creative marketing and is your go-to gal if you come to JSD for a digital campaign
